Massive forum upgrade – new q&a posts, email fixed, & join with steam, etc


#1

It has been a long time. The forum hasn’t been functioning properly; activation emails wouldn’t go out, YouTube embeds were broken, it was slower than it should have been, and there were some errors under the hood. Well, I (Logan) finally decided to do things myself. At first I did the website and had someone local help me with the forum. Things happened and the local help got busy so I left it alone. Well, after a while I decided it was time to just do it myself. So, there are tons of upgrades. Here are the major ones:

Log in with Steam, Github, Google, or Twitter
Emails Work
Embedded Videos Work
New Tag System
New Q&A Topic – Select the best answer and it will rise to the top
Thanks all for being patient. We have, once again, the best place to communicate on the web. Stop by and introduce yourselves.

We are also looking for writers for the site. Email Justin: [email protected]

Everything works good for me, however I had trouble signing up with my Outlook account, I never got the confirmation email, Gmail worked though.

Also, reports in the comments of various signup errors:

Odd. I only saw one inactive account today and it was Yahoo… you won’t get an email if the account is active.

Fixed.

I don’t know what it is, but sometimes when posting Youtube links, it doesn’t show the preview as it naturally does.
